  • Why Ben Carson is the Perfect (Vice) Presidential Candidate

    When Dr. Ben Carson took the stage at the 2013 National Prayer Breakfast, few would have guessed the prominent pediatric neurosurgeon from Johns Hopkins would be running for president just a few years later. His now famous—or infamous, depending on which side of the aisle you sit—bludgeoning of the Affordable Care Act, the Obama administration’s signature law, almost instantly went viral and put Carson on U.S. conservatives’ radar.The newly anointed Tea Party hero presents a rare and exceptional mix of character, poise, and dazzling intelligence, all alongside a passionate Christian faith and love for the Constitution. It’s not surprising then...

    ATLANTA -- The late soul singer James Brown used to call himself the hardest-working man in showbiz. Now another Georgian, a U.S. senator, is proving to be the hardest-working man in his line of work. Many Americans likely don't know the name Johnny Isakson. He's not the type to ever push his name into the limelight. But insiders on Capitol Hill know him, and it's no secret that Georgia's senior senator is everyone's "go-to" person when it comes to producing concrete results and to promoting the conservative agenda in a businesslike and respectable manner. Isakson, who was sworn into office...

    On September 25, the 23rd Arab-American Candidates Night Dinner was held in Virginia, attended by 46 Democrats and Republicans seeking office, with former governor and current Democratic Senate candidate, Tim Kaine, as a major speaker. The dinner honored a top Muslim Brotherhood official affiliated with Hamas named Jamal Barzinji, an inconvenient and overlooked fact for Kaines campaign team. Tim Kaine was the governor of Virginia from 2006 to 2010 and then was the chairman of the Democratic National Committee. He was on the short-list to become President Obamas running mate. He is now running for Senate and will likely face...

How else to explain his public dissatisfaction with the job of playing straight man to a president who treats him like a White House butler? Maybe, since he does not need the job to be covered by Obamacare, the vice president might be better off quitting and devoting his time to writing poetry. That is what Nancy Pelosi, the House minority leader, suggested following release of the Congressional Budget Office report that said Obamacare will cost the nation some 2.5 million full time jobs, but that these...

    I'm amazed that the president got away with blaming Bush for so long. In one respect I agree with him. The reason why Romney lost tonight is Bush's fault. Bush knew in 2006 that his VP Dick Cheney would not run for president. There would be no heir apparent. He handed over the process to the GOP, who promptly tried to push Rudy McRomney onto the electorate. Rudy was dispensed with, way too liberal. McCain was given his chance... yikes, what a crappy candidate. And then Romney was given his chance. All of them were losers. And it's all Bush's...

With an electorate so distrusting of Washington (and rightfully so), Joe Biden did absolutely nothing to instill confidence that the next four years will be better than the last.

    The selection of Rep. Paul Ryan to be Gov. Mitt Romney's running mate was an excellent choice. Nevertheless, the press corps happily bought into the Obama campaign's early response that, as the Washington Post's Dan Balz wrote:"There was no one on Romney's short list of contenders they wanted to run against more than the chairman of the House Budget Committee." The great thing about that statement is: It would have worked no matter whom Romney had picked. In this age of everything anyone has ever said or even thought about anything being available instantaneously on-line, there is no such thing...

A FOX News poll released yesterday said that Rice is the top choice of the Republican faithful to be the ticketmate of Mitt Romney, the partys presumptive presidential nominee. But she is not the top choice of this social conservative; this long-time Republican. Thats because Condi supports abortion rights.

Other than former Louisiana Democrat U.S. Senator John Breaux, now retired, who was a frequent face on the national tube, no other Louisiana politician has been as visable. Even Breaux, probably has been surpassed by the current Governor so far. Now, that he could be a legitimate candidate for the VP spot as Mitt Romney's running mate, it's no contest.

    In the past week, the Bobby Jindal for Vice President Campaign has moved into hyper drive. More pro-Jindal-as-VP columns have been written, but this time from smart, but seriously misguided, Louisiana conservative columnists. Incredibly, for a Governor who has spent the past five years constantly traveling the country, he has hit the campaign trail even more in 2012. Every week, he is out of the state raising funds for the GOP, collecting political IOUs, and establishing his name recognition among that influential power base, top Republican donors. In recent days, he has traveled to Virginia and Illinois and plans to...

    Conservatives attending a recent regional conference in Chicago voiced their support in a straw poll for Florida US Senator Marco Rubios selection for the bottom-half of the 2012 GOP ticket, which is hardly surprising. Rubio is the closest thing the Republican Party has to a rock star politician. The young Cuban-American is for the GOP in 2012 what Barack Obama was to the Democratic Party after 2004.

    The Hill ^ | 06/01/12 | Niall Stanage and Molly Hooper
    One mark against Sen. Rob Portman (R-Ohio) being Mitt Romneys vice-presidential choice may be that Portmans not sufficiently polarized. If the speculation Portman will become Mitt Romneys vice-presidential pick proves true, he could complicate the presidential race in an unexpected way: he has a legitimate record of bipartisanship and is well-regarded even by a number of Democrats on Capitol Hill. Portman is currently stirring more vice-presidential talk among Beltway insiders by taking a trip to Israel, where he held a meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Thursday. The Ohioan has faced criticism for his supposed grayness but he...

    Vice President Biden, who has been increasingly prone to gaffes and veering off message as of late, is taking the week off. Biden will be at home in Wilmington, Delaware for the rest of the week. --- While always prone to saying the wrong thing, Biden in recent weeks has been on a roll. --------- But Biden has been the victim of many other self-inflicted wounds during the past several weeks, including calling Obama President Clinton, calling Romney President Romney, suggesting the Irish drink too much, crossing himself in front of a meeting of over 1,000 conservative rabbis, and paying...

    Joe Biden is the vice president with a gift for gaffe. So prevalent are his public relations disasters that pundits wonder whether his job is to make President Obama look smart. It's hard to argue otherwise. He advised the president not to raid Osama bin Laden's compound. In Biden's world, paying higher taxes is "patriotic." Ultimately, the gaffes aren't funny they're sad. The man who doesn't want "a real job" because "you have to produce" is a heartbeat away from the presidency Read more: http://times247.com/pset/22gaffetastic-joe-great-moments-in-biden-history1/page/0#ixzz1vvqOZuor

    During the Internet broadcast of the Fox News Channels Special Report Online Wednesday, syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer told viewers why the odds of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton replacing Vice President Joe Biden on the Democrats 2012 presidential ticket are very low. Id say that the Indianapolis Colts have a better chance of winning the Super Bowl, Krauthammer said. And I have only one reason for saying that, and that is Obamas I say this not as a clinician narcissism. Obama, I think, can never bring himself to do something very large, like this, which would show that...
